Health & Safety Measures

During your timeslot, you will arrive at the front entrance of our building to check in. We are located at 60 Harbord Street (Spadina Avenue and Harbord Street). Please ensure that you bring photo identification with you as you will need this to collect your welcome package and keys. 

Our contactless welcome team will be on hand to process your move-in and answer any questions you may have, and we also have carts available that you can borrow to assist with your move. 

Once you’re checked in, you’ll receive your mailbox key through our contactless pick-up method. You’ll use this key to access your welcome package and room fob in your mailbox.  

Moving In

Face masks or face coverings are required in all University of Toronto buildings, including Graduate House.

To help with social distancing, we ask that you bring no more than 2 family members or friends with you to help you move-in. In order to provide a contactless move-in experience, our staff will not be able to assist in unloading or moving personal items. 

 

Pay-and-display underground parking is available below Graduate House: http://map.utoronto.ca/marker/graduate_garage (entering off Glen Morris Street). There is free short-term street parking (1 hour max.) on Glen Morris Street, next to Graduate House.  

Please let us know if you will need to request a later move-in in order to fulfill the quarantine requirement. Kindly note that if you are international student and will be traveling to Grad House from outside of Canada, you will be required to quarantine for 14 days before moving in. The University will be providing quarantine accommodations at no cost to incoming international students. More information can be found here.

How can I meet other Grad House residents?

You will be assigned a Residence Advisor (RA) upon move in. Your Residence Advisor will reach out to you after you move in to set up a 1-1 virtual chat. RAs will also hold weekly virtual office hours to answer any questions, and support you with whatever you need!

We invite you to connect with other incoming and current residents on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/groups/gradhouse2021.
